Tech Camps

Spend Your Summer Exploring Science and Engineering!

UNH Tech Camp is a set of summer programs for students entering grades 5 through 12 designed to increase STEM literacy. The programs engage young people in interactive, hands-on, problem-solving activities in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). UNH Tech Camp is offered by the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of New Hampshire and makes available the benefits of the UNH research campus to the community-at-large. Since 2007, these programs are designed to immerse campers in the world of science, engineering andtechnology.

Residential & Special Accommodations
 
  • Campers who choose to stay on campus will reside in UNH dormitories from Sunday evening through Friday afternoon
  • Even though TechLeaders is a two-week program, residential campers leave campus Friday afternoon at the end of the camp day and return the following Sunday evening
  • The campers are grouped according to gender with a maximum camper to counselor ratio of approximately 8:1
  • The counselor (gender appropriate for the group) has his/her own room and stays right with the campers
  • Counselors accompany the campers to dinner and breakfast and go with campers if they leave the dormitory for any reason
  • More detailed information will be sent to each residential camper prior to camp starting

Campers will be doing a lot of moving from one location to another within Kingsbury Hall as well as between buildings. The buildings at the University that UNH Tech Camp will be using are handicap accessible. While we have faculty and counselors involved in all of the activities, we do not have individual instructional aides available for the campers.

It would be helpful and wise to discuss your concerns with the faculty camp director at the start of camp or even prior to registration.
